Due to a slow start on fundraising, St. Paws will match donations up to $1,000 through Aug. 8.

Soon after the Waldo Canyon Fire began, I wrote about a few of the smaller and lesser-known nonprofits that were helping during the emergency.
Among them was All Breed Rescue & Training, which shut down its normal operations in order to accomodate dogs, cats and other animals from the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region and from evacuees' homes. Though the owners/parents of these animals may have been going through the hardest times of their lives, it was clear that their pets/babies weren't. All Breed spoiled them rotten.
But All Breed was spending a lot of money on that effort. And, with its money-making operations shut down, it wasn't bringing any cash in. Now All Breed needs rescuing.
Through Aug. 1, St. Paws Thrift Store is hosting a matching fund drive to help All Breed out. Funds will be matched up to $1,000.
Donations will be taken at St. Paws at 3275 E. Platte Ave. Checks should include "ABRT Match" on the memo line. If you choose to give by credit card or cash, you'll need to let the store know what the money is for. For more information, call St. Paws at 597-3647.
